‘When we moved to Wales in 1983 we soon discovered to our great joy
that our neighbouring farmer, Walter Price, was a born and bred
Radnorshire man. By then the Village elder, he was wise, kindly, a man
of the soil, a true and immensely knowledgeable country-lover,
interested in artistic things, and eccentric. His farmyard with its
ramshackle buildings was full, not only of the usual ducks and hens but
exotic Chinese pheasants, and peacocks which would roost in the trees,
and black Norfolk Turkeys, an endless and constantly changing menagerie
where I spent many happy days drawing.’ John Sergeant, letter to Paul
Liss, 28th February, 2005.
